Haha... So, you're just going to chalk up a $100K loss to experience and karma? Yeah, seems legit.
+1. Extremely suspicious that someone would leave a bunch of money and run, just because they don't want to be identified, even privately.

Especially since Zhou has already posted the only username he's come across that matches the info provided. IIRC, he was only asking Maria to confirm or deny.

Still around.

Maybe when I get home tonight I'll put my free long distance to work and give Maria a call to see if it's her.

Awesome, B&H has good prices on telescopes at times. Maria, instead of my BTC reward, could you send me a 6mm Delos? Thanks.

Doubt it, but the username of the account ZT thinks is Maria's is a phone number for a B&H in NY.
Oops doh I missed that, nice coincidence lol.

I would say it's more likely that Maria is linked to that twitter account that's following Zhoutong with the same avatar. Seems appropriate with the constant spamming of twitter follower links and get rich quick schemes.

And if I followed the links correctly, her husband may have authored a book. I'm just saying. Perhaps this is why she's giving up on the ruse. The only reason I even decided to track her down was because she kept bringing attention to herself, and it wasn't passing the smell test. Ain't that right Lisa, I mean Maria.

The only reason I conducted a search on ZT is for the protection, of sorts, of Bitcoin and Bitcoiners, alike. I kind of screwed up on that, maybe, and have since apologized to ZT, opened. Sorry, ZT, for not doing via a PM also.

tl;dr
Did you just say that she is Lisa Marie? That explains everything.

If "she" doesn't want to give even "her" username and email to ZT publicly or privately, why would she give them to a debt collector?

Why are you even giving any credit to anything "she" says?

Because I would not trust Zhou Tong either given the problems he has caused. But then I would not argue about that amount of cash on an internet forum either. I would go to a lawyer or debt collector without delay.


I don't know if this is a valid or false claim. Maybe you lot all know something that I don't because you all seem convinced that this claim is false. Either way the gender of the claimant is irrelevant, the validity of the claim is what's important.

You are correct, sd.

Now let me tell you how much this frozen money is costing me DAILY. 2,300 USD. Each day my trading robot is not trading is a day lost. I am not claiming that money at all, just the actual balance the last time I logged in my bitcoinica.com.

But surrendering with...

Maybe she just sold the source to the robot. I'm sure there would be a huge number of people interested in a trading "robot" that gives a 2.3% daily return.

You are probably right. There is something very fishy about this whole thing.

People don't just give up on such amounts of cash without a decent fight and the fighting comes easy when someone else is going to do it for a cut.

No "fight" is even needed. Will you give someone $150K without even knowing her username or email at all?

Bitcoinica has a fixed amount of assets and all refunding process must be record-by-record. Maria can only show that she had an account before, but not anything else!

UPDATE

Since Maria did not confirm or deny the username, I have to do my own research.

The account 2122397500 is likely hers or husband's, according to the email address. It was registered on September 9, 2011.

At the time of writing it has a balance of $0.28007 and zero BTC. Currently unclaimed.

Also, Maria's requested amount almost matched the largest balance in Bitcoinica history (and I know the account holder quite closely). I have been sorting by USD balance and BTC balance almost every week since last year and it's impossible that I don't know a user with a substantial amount invested.
